Prolonged reaction to Bordetella vaccine?
I administered a Bordetella vaccine to my dog, a three-year-old Doberman Pinscher, two weeks ago, and since then he's had on-again-off-again hypersalivation. He appears to foam at the mouth when he gets excited or anxious. I've seen this occur about a half dozen times so far. He otherwise seems perfectly healthy, no other symptoms of ailments (ie. no signs of poisoning, nausea, organ issues, etc.).
He's never had a reaction to Bordetella before, generally Rabies is where he runs into some issues. The vaccine was refrigerated and administered at the appropriate temperature, so I don't believe the vaccine was contaminated. I noticed the initial hypersalivation about an hour after the vaccine was administered. I haven't found any information about this being a side-effect of Bordetella, so I'm not entirely sure it's the culprit.
Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks!

I would take him to the vet.
